Apart from the obvious toll on health, the cost of smoking can add up to thousands of pounds a year.
(In the UK the average price for a pack of 20 fags is around £6 (give or take a few pence). So, if someone smokes a pack a day:-
Cost of Smoking Per Day – £6.00
Cost of Smoking Per Week – £42.00
Cost of Smoking Per Month – £182.00
Cost of Smoking Per Year – £2,184.00
Cost of Smoking Over Five Years – £10,950.00

Maybe there should be a new warning: Cigarettes can seriously damage your wallet.)
